Vince is doing something . . either taking a class, teaching a class, writing a database . . I do not have a clue but whatever he’s doing caused this conversation to happen last night.
Vince: Why do you knit sweaters?
Me: Gotta knit something.
Vince: Why do you knit?
Me: Because I can’t sit still and stay out of trouble if I’m not busy.
Vince: No! You’re not getting the questions!
Me: Maybe you’re not getting the answers!
He went on to explain that the answer to “why do you do anything?” should have at least a four part answer. Example:
Q: Why do you exercise?
A: Because I want to be healthy.
Q: Why do you want to be healthy?
A: Because I want to have a good quality of life.
Q: Why do you want a good quality of life?
Oh, my goodness . . I forgot the answers but he had a dozen or so questions and he was trying to decide if each “why do you do anything?” question always has a four part answer or if it could have more answers. In my case . . it has one answer . . I don’t know why I’m doing anything!
He insisted on me telling him why I knit. I told him . . I can’t tell you why I do anything I do. Why did I not serve you a cheese sandwich for dinner instead of the yummy chicken dish I spent all afternoon in the kitchen making when I could have been knitting . . for no reason! 🙂
I wanted to say “Why did I send half the stuff I bought to Nicole instead of sending it here?” Partially because it won’t arrive here before I leave but partially so you won’t see everything I bought. Hey . . that’s a two part answer and that’s more than I can come up as to why I knit.
The man has too much time on his hands. I think he needs to go shopping more! 🙂
If he starts asking me why I do everything I do . . there’s going to be trouble!
